Rahway River Trout Unlimited is one of the newest New Jersey Trout Unlimited chapters. We are an organization of men and women that strive to protect our cold freshwater fisheries throughout the state. Our members meet once a month, discuss many topics from conservation to fishing. We also go on fishing trips throughout the year, conduct river cleanups, and partake in many other activities. If you like fishing or just want to give back to the environment then RRTU is for you.
If you live near one of the following towns and are a trout fisherman or care about conservation, we want you in our Rahway River Trout Unlimited Chapter:
Cranford, Westfield, Garwood, Fanwood, Kenilworth, Chatham, Iselin, Linden, Clark, Springfield, Union, Vauxhall, Mountainside, Elizabeth, Roselle, Roselle Park, Hillside, Scotch Plains and New Providence

Jon started kayak fishing in the late 90s and has logged over 1000 days on the water fishing from a kayak in over 75 kayak models for over 100 species of fish. He’s done so all over the continent for many diverse species like tuna, billfish, mahi mahi, bonefish, cobia, etc. He’s a NJ native and knows the local kayak fishing well. Jon has over 20,000 forum posts, has authored hundreds of articles and is author of “Kayak Fishing”, the most comprehensive book on the subject.
Jon is co-owner of ‘The Kayak Fishing Store’. It is a business that specializes in kayak fishing. Everyone involved with the business is an avid kayak angler. The focus is fishing from kayaks with kayak sales, installations, repairs, the most complete accessories for kayak fishing anywhere, rentals and trips. Simply put it is the most complete kayak fishing business anywhere.
Jon, while not a purist, is an avid fly fisherman and has been fly fishing 47 years. He uses a fly rod regularly from the kayak and his seminar will cover fly fishingaspects of kayak fishing too.
Come join us for one of our Fly Tying nights at the Cranford Community Center!
Our next Fly Tying Nights will be:
Monday, November 25that 7:00 PM
& Monday, December 16that 7:00 PM (Rocking Holiday Party with Movie)
All are welcome!
The meetings are free and are open to all. All tying levels are welcome.
We have extra materials and vices for those who need them and there are
volunteers who will work with the new people who want to try fly tying.
You don't have to be a TU member to join us. We have free coffee and donuts and always have a fly fishing DVD
playing. This is a very informal get together with the purpose of
sharing our hobby with other people who want to find out what it is all
about in a laid back atmosphere. You will find it to be a very relaxing
evening even if you don't want to tie flies. Come down and have a cup of
coffee and meet a great bunch of guys, talk fishing or sports (no
politics) or pick up some tying tips. This time of year is a great time
to refill your fly boxes. Hope to see you there.
I hope everyone has had a safe and enjoyable summer.
The Rahway River Trout Unlimited (RRTU) Chapterhas changed the day we meet each month.
RRTU will be holding its general meeting starting this September on the THIRD MONDAY of the month.
The past two years Wednesday evenings the Cranford
Community Center the Audio Visual Room seemed to be always over booked
and we would end up getting bumped, and on two occasions we had no room
to hold our meeting in.
We have been holding our bi-monthly Fly Tying Meetings on Monday nights and for the most part the AV room was available.
For those reasons we have decided to move our general monthly meeting to the third Monday of the month@ 7:30 P.M. giving us less of a
chance of getting bumped.
One of the first order of business at our September 2013 meeting will be to approve our By-Laws to reflect this change.
Our meeting schedule for the up coming year will be as follows;
(No meeting in December)
...Please Contact our
President, Dennis McCarthy @ RRTU.President@gmail.com
or come join us at one of our monthly meeting's or fly tying nights!

to keep America's rivers cold, clean and fishable.
This past fall The Rahway River Trout Unlimited Chapter hosted their annual Kids Fall Fishing Derby @ Nomahegan Park in Cranford New Jersey. Children lined the lake casting for the "big one". We still don't know who had more fun - the kids or the adults? You decide....
Women’s Initiative (WI) Program at New Jersey Trout Unlimited:
Be Part of it...... Trout Unlimited is America's leading coldwater conservation organization
Make a Difference..... Be a grassroots advocate for protection of the environment
Leave a Legacy..... Work to ensure we have clean, cold, fishable water for generations to come
The main goal of the NJ State Council of Trout Unlimited Women’s Initiative
is to provide support for chapters to recruit new members to TU as well
as engage current members to network with other women and become
involved in chapter projects and river outings. As a grass
roots effort campaign, the NJ State Council hopes to see an increase in
women involvement and work to empower new leaders to share their
passion for cold water conservation. Whether new to the sport or an
experienced angler, the idea to unite women in the state and open
communication will serve to enrich our membership. There are future
plans to organize outings in Spring, which will give women in the state
the opportunity to gather together for fishing and camaraderie.
